The LSA Opportunity Hub hosts in-person and virtual events and workshops throughout the year to support students.
These events and workshops are an important resource for LSA undergrads—one element in a series of experiences during your time at Michigan. Each is designed to help you gain clarity about your professional path and next steps.
LSA Internship Fair
The annual LSA Internship Forum is designed to help you navigate the internship search process and learn how to maximize the experience. Past interns will share their own experiences and tips, and Hub staff are available to work with you to identify the best next steps for you. It’s also a place to gain advice from alums, from recent grads just breaking into their industry all the way up to those with established, decades-long careers.
Check back later in the Fall for the date of the 2021-2022 LSA Internship Fair.
Social Impact Fair
The annual LSA Social Impact Fair is a chance to explore opportunities for you to affect change on pressing issues, or to gain experience in nonprofits supporting the arts, health, and beyond. Representatives from nonprofit organizations and U-M programs will share more than 100 internships, volunteer opportunities, and part-time jobs. The experiences available range from environmental sustainability to volunteer work in shelters for domestic violence survivors. The Hub team is also on hand to discuss funding resources and specialized programs in the field, including the Applebaum Internship Program.
The 2020-2021 Social Impact Fair will be held together with the Internship Forum on Feb. 10, 2021.
LSA Grad School Fair
If you’re thinking about applying to grad school (or already have it in your plans), you’ll need insight on what makes you a competitive candidate, how to secure funding, and what to expect throughout the process.
The annual Grad School Fair gathers all those resources in one place, so you can learn more about programs and application requirements and talk with current grad students across different disciplines about their experiences. It’s also a chance for undergrads to develop their plan—outlining what the next steps are on their path to admission to law, medical, business, public policy, and other graduate programs.
Check back later in the Fall for the date of the 2021-2022 LSA Grad School fair.
Alum Connections brings alums and students together for conversation that’s authentic and personal.
Students who participate in these in-depth talks (RSVPs fill up fast!) get the chance to ask questions directly and walk away with invaluable information. Past alum participants have included Pinterest’s Head of Community Operations Jud Hoffman, New York Times-published international photographer Kirsten Kortebein, and Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller.
What sets these sessions apart is their size and format: a small group in an informal setting (dress code is come as you are). No resume exchanges or fussy suits—these sessions invite students to explore and understand, rather than compete.

Develop important elements of your professional identity in the Hub’s small-group coaching workshops. These sessions cover a wide range of topics, including how to create and manage a LinkedIn profile that advances your goals, crafting a compelling cover letter, and tips for navigating your internship search.
